Having our house on the market has been stressful for me...but I'm pretty sure that's how it is for most people, right? I feel like everything has to be perfect. Nothing out of place, no handprints on the oven, no crumbs on the floor. So my life has revolved around cleaning lately. Cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning. That and being away from home so realtors can show it. So far we've had a lot of people come and see it and have two people coming next week to see it for a second time. So when our realtor calls and says he's going to show the house, we kick it in to high gear and then try to find something to do away from the home so that we don't mess it up and they can look at it. We've gone to the pool, gotten slushies from Sonic and taken them to the park, grabbed a Redbox movie and watched it in the car, etc. I'm starting to run out of ideas...that and it's getting hot. I'm just tired. It has been exhausting!
So, I was REALLY looking forward to spending Memorial Weekend at my in-law's cabin at Roosevelt Lake. I was looking forward to sleeping in, making messes, leaving dirty dishes in the sink (for a few hours, at least), playing in the water, and NOT WORRYING ABOUT THE HOUSE. Ahhhh....it was paradise! The kids were especially excited to have their cousins there with them. We played in the river, caught frogs, played Settlers a few times, watched movies, ate tons of yummy food, started cleaning out "the train car", skipped rocks, rode the jet ski's, watched Hunter and Kadan try to get up on the wakeboard, played the Wii (I am now addicted to the game Just Dance and can work up quite a sweat playing it), I gave the girls pedicures, read books, sat on the porch and watched the sunset, Brett and I started making some big plans for the future, I twisted my ankle (jumping out of the truck at the dump to throw away nasty stuff from that train car...still not quite back to normal yet), took the kids to the Tonto Basin branch for church on Sunday and enjoyed one of the best sacrament meetings ever, and took a few pictures....
Moose caught a fish. Wow...what a whopper!
Chubs threw rocks in the water for hours. I loved listening to him grunt a little "hnt" everytime he threw another rock!
The kids stalking their "prey"....tadpoles, fish, and frogs.
Mmmmm....mornings like this are heaven, right?
Seriously cool light...and some silly boys...two things that make me really happy!
I'm all ready to go again, who's with me?
